hello everyone, this is a very difficult question.
Does anyone know if it's possible to implement Google Suggest in a Actionscript application.
I'll explain better: I want to develope a flash based web application that enable users to enter a keyword and it return a set of possible relevant keywords.
An example of these types of application can be given here:
It seems quite difficult, because Google doesn't provide any API for the Suggest tool, but it seems to be possible, although I still haven't found out how.
I'll apreciate if someone can give me an help on this problem

    Hmm... I have to believe that google offers this through SOAP, or there has to be a similar WSDL service. Now Im curious.

    I believe you can do it ver yeasy in actionscript:

    you just have to replace their XMLHTTP part with LoadVars and thats all. Of course it requires alot of server side scripting as well.
